Baker Botts LLP has added a trio of energy lawyers to its team. William S. Lamb and Michael W.E. Didriksen will join the firm's New York office, and Thomas J. Moore will be based in Houston.

All three attorneys managed major matters for energy clients around the world at their previous firm, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, including mergers and acquisitions, project development and divestitures.

Lamb, who was co-chair of Dewey's Utilities, Power and Pipelines Global Industry Sector Group, is counsel to AES Corp. in its sale of two gas-fired generating plants. He advises both public and private companies in mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, as well as financings. He represents bidders and targets in both negotiated and unsolicited mergers and acquisitions.

Didriksen, who was a partner in Dewey's U.S. Energy and Utilities Practice Group, represents major energy industry companies and other large corporate clients, primarily on project development, mergers and acquisitions and divestitures. His experience includes structuring transactions for both regulated and unregulated companies in the electric power and gas industries.

Moore, who served as co-chair of the energy mergers and acquisitions practice at Dewey, leads the representation of the Angola LNG project that is designed to eliminate flaring of natural gas produced in Angola's offshore oil production. He also led the representation of RWE in its acquisition of a 50% interest in Excelerate Energy, a U.S.-based international LNG trading and infrastructure company.
